[S]upermodel lineage? Check. Walking in 18 of the biggest catwalk shows in a single season for SS18 (including Chanel’s waterfall-ensconced spectacular to Versace’s #iconic celebration of the OG ‘Supers’)? Pah – easy!

Get ready for the backstage grumbles and “yeah, but she’s Cindy Crawford’s mini-me” comments, right? Of course genes of fashion royalty certainly helps, but the teen model of the moment and social media supremo – with her legs for days, sardonic smile and relaxed self assurance – demonstrates she is making her own mark on the international runway scene. And she’ll stop at nothing.
